    Two weeks ago I finished a baby quilt from a panel that was meant to be a fabric book...Pokey Little Puppy. I made a Warm Wishes quilt out of it, alternating 13 "pages/cover" from the book with the Warm Wishes block. Turned out cute, 25 blocks altogether.

    With lots of pages from an alphabet block, simple sashing might be good.

    One thing I've found with panels is they are often not square and if you prewash that can make it worse. I always prewash, but for the Pokey Puppy quilt I did not. I carefully squared up each page into a block. I washed the finished quilt with a color catcher in case there was any bleeding from the fabric.

    I have cut a panel for a fabric book and made it into a wall hanging quilt as well - did it for Halloweeen for the DGC. I then glued on Halloween trinkets to embelish it, turned out cute.
    Quilting makes me happy!..

    I'm thinking with 26 blocks, depending on how big the individual blocks are, that is going to be one BIG quilt top. Unless, you do a blocks on the front and the back of the quilt. How big are the blocks/pages??
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.
